Baby Loss Awareness Week 2017

This year Baby Loss Awareness Week runs from the 9th to the 15th October. If you would like to join us in helping to raise awareness of baby loss and how we can help to support bereaved parents, here's how you can get involved.

Buy a Baby Loss Pin


You can now buy the Baby Loss Awareness Pin directly from ARC, helping to raise awareness across the UK. The pins are available for £1 each and you can buy them using the link below.

*Please note, due to very limited availability we are not able to fulfil orders of more than 10 pins*

 Take part in the Wave of Light

At 7pm on the 15th October, Baby Loss Awareness week will end with the international Wave of Light. To take part, all you need to do is light a candle at 7pm and leave it burning for an hour, in remembrance of all the babies who have died too soon. You can also be involved in a digital Wave of Light by posting a photo of your candle on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter, using the hashtag #WaveofLight.

You can also buy a Wave of Light battery operated tea light through ARC. Printed with the words 'Wave of Light 15th October' the lights come with a battery included and cost £3 each.
